New Name Coming for Sun Life Stadium

Sun Life Stadium will be no more within three years because Sun Life Financial, the parent company behind the naming rights to the stadium, announced last week it was pulling up stakes in the United States according to Manny Navarro and Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

A Dolphins spokesman was unavailable for comment. The Dolphins are expected to begin a search for a new naming rights partner in the very near future.

The stadium has undergone a number of name changes over the years. Originally it was called Dolphins Stadium, then it was renamed Joe Robbie Stadium in a 1986 announcement by the Robbie children to honor their father, the Dolphins’ original owner. It’s been called Pro Player Stadium, Pro Player Park, Dolphin Stadium, Land Shark Stadium and finally Sun Life Stadium.
